"We're not very religious people, but we are believers. And we believe in God, but we find it very uncomfortable to see what religion has turned God into."
- Edge, 2000
The title of the song Hawkmoon 269 came from a place U2 passed by during the Conspiracy of Hope tour called Hawkmoon. The number 269 stands for the amount of mixes the song needed before it was ready, it took the band three weeks to record.
